    These people are my Great Grandpa,and Grandma, and whenever I visit them they have a pretzel mix for me to eat. They are very nice and I am proud of them!

    How precious and encouraging. Being married just 10 years now, I so know the value of continuing to date my husband and I LOVE that it is confirmed by a couple married 75 years! My husband and I laughed with you over your memory of your remodel argument.

    Congratulations to a great couple. Not many people can say they were married for 50 + years. My grandparents were married for almost 69 years before he passed away at age 88.
